Inspired by one of my fellow dreamers, I recently embarked upon a journey through time, by collecting all of my old journals and reading through them in chronological order, starting with my first one at age eighteen. My primary intention was to look for dreams that I had written down over the years, add them to my growing dream catalog, and track as far back as possible the themes and patterns which have continued to run through my life for so many years. I’m noticing how these themes have evolved over time, and how I’ve become more conscious, lucid, and empowered, especially in the scary or threatening dreams.
I’m fascinated by how many of my earlier dreams were precognitive, foreshadowing things that would come anywhere from months to years later. I didn’t realize then, how my dreams were helping me to tap in to deeper levels of understanding my environment, my relationships, and my choices. As I processed my life experiences on a conscious level, I was also developing my intuition and unconscious knowledge of what was happening. I was unaware of the messages that I was receiving in my dreams, and wish I had had the tools then to help me through some difficult and chaotic times!
My passion for sharing this work is to teach people to use dream skills, to build awareness and tap into this rich source of guidance and transformation! I wish I had learned it a lot earlier along my journey, and it’s never too late!
